The Adventures of Onyx and The Race to Mackinac
by Benson, Tyler
More than 350 competitors in the Chicago to Mackinac Island sailboat race are nearing the finish line, but trouble is brewing. An overnight weather shift brings high gusts and huge waves, and the Coast Guard goes on high alert. Meanwhile, on the response boat, Onyx’s two rambunctious puppies, Search and Rescue, are creating a distraction. Unlike Onyx, the pups have not yet learned to stay calm and listen to commands. But when the crew needs help to rescue a drifting sailor, Search and Rescue prove they can live up to their names. Ages 4 to 12.
